I was actually trying to keep this on the DL (yo), but John and I planned to slip away for a Caribbean cruise this week.
We also booked a cabin for my parents, since we don't get to see them much.
Nice rat wedding cake, though.
Anyway, so, we flew my folks down,
...and then John and I stayed up all night finishing my sparkly dress for Formal Night:
When we arrived, though, DISASTER:
Ok, so this pig (I think it's a pig) looks more frightened than sarcastic. But do you know how hard it is to find a sarcastic looking cake?
Anyway, getting back to my tragic tale of metaphorical disaster:
Except...it turns out, there's not that.
This is me, watching my family sail away.
Only, you know, with less apples and more snot. [head tilt] And clothing. Definitely more clothing.
In fact, Celebrity Cruises, I got you a virtual cookie cake - just to show there are no hard feelings.
See? It's a visual representation of how you treated us! Isn't that sweet?
-The expired passport? Yes, totally our fault. We know. Bummer.
-The cruise line would accept a faxed birth certificate. Totally wrong. Also, passports used to be valid for up to a year after expiration for cruise purposes. I've been on three cruises with an expired passport. The whole ID thing is wonky.
-Two Celebrity employees at the port including a supervisor assured us we would get a voucher for another cruise - but now they won't honor that promise. That's the main issue here.
